Blackout was reported at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos state on Tuesday following a power outage as passengers were stranded.
A reporter, identified as Yemisi Adegoke, took to her Twitter page, @briticoyemo, on Tuesday night to reveal how air passengers were stranded on Tuesday at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos following a power outage.
According to multiple online reports, the passengers were said to have been kept in the dark for hours as immigration officials did not address the anxious crowd, as the airport did not switch to another alternative power while the power outage lasted.
It was gathered that the airport officials were said to have taken foreigners among the passengers to another section of the airport where there was power.
Passengers were said to have been frustrated as they could not proceed with the boarding processes.

“At Lagos International Airport and there is currently no power…and by the look of it NO GEN,” Adegoke tweeted.

“Passengers going MAD because officials started allowing foreigners to go to the other side or the airport, where there is electricity. One woman was yelling “would they do this for us if we were in their country?”

The light was later restored while passengers were attended to by immigration officials.
Read her tweets as she narrated the event at the airport below;

Incredible scenes at the commercial capital of Nigeria’s international airport. NO ELECTRICITY. NO GENERATOR. NO EXPLANATION.

An immigration officer is complaining about what this looks like to ‘foreigners.’

Foreigners were taken to where there was light. Nigerians are nothing but second class citizens in Nigeria and in the rest of the world.
